Cement Augmentation of Metaphyseal Sleeve Fixation in Revision Total Knee Replacements.
Clinical Trial Information
Trial Contact: Harriott, Paula
Trial Phone: 321.841.3867
IRB No: 13.157.10
Principal Investigator: George John Haidukewych, MD
Age Group: Adult
Secondary Protocol No: Sleeve and Cement
Applicable Disease Sites: Knee
Therapies Involved: Observational study
Bone loss encountered during TKA often requires additional fixation and build up of the metaphysis with porous metal sleeves. Often there exists a defect in the proximal tibia, leaving a void between the proximal extent of native bone and the top of the sleeve. This study proposes a method of dealing with this clinical situation using bone cement.
